The field of biological sciences helped spearhead the preprint movement in scientific publishing. Launched in 2013 by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, bioRxiv allowed life science researchers to make their findings immediately available to received feedback on draft manuscripts before they are submitted to journals. The chemical sciences followed upon the success of bioRxiv, and in August 2017 ACS launched ChemRxiv.
Today, ChemRxiv features over 2,800 preprints from authors in 70 countries. These preprints have been viewed and downloaded more than 3.7 million times. Additionally, many of the ChemRxiv preprints have gone on to be peer-reviewed and published in the top chemistry journals.
ACS Synthetic Biology would like to celebrate the success of the preprint! Some of the top trending and highly-cited research published in ACS Synthetic Biology was first posted as a preprint to bioRxiv. Authors can send their preprints from ChemRxiv to ACS Synthetic Biology using Direct Journal Transfer free of charge.
